In today’s world there is no such thing as a “9 to 5” job. Sure the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the average American works 38.6 hours a week but that doesn’t count for all the other activities that go on in life. Between shopping, shuttling the kids around, going to the gym, mowing the lawn and exploring the world we can work as much as 98 hours a week; yet we adapt.
We start our days off early and end them late. With such a busy lifestyle we need a smart, convenient and adaptable way to keep ourselves hydrated.
That’s exactly why Niki Singlaub created the Hydaway water bottle. Unlike any other water bottle, it sets itself apart by being able to collapse into a small portable disc. Weighing just over 5 ounces and being just over 4 inches in diameter, the Hydaway is able to go with you during any part of your busy day.
When you’re ready to take a sip you simply take it out of your gym bag, backpack, purse of back pocket, pull it apart and fill it up with the liquid of your choice. While you can fill the Hydaway with nearly any drink, keep in mind it is made of silicone and the walls may not be thick enough to provide insulation from hot liquids.
Even though some may not dare fill it with hot liquids, the silicone material is quite literally a lifesaver. Not only does it save oceans and landfills from plastic waste but it is food-grade, BPA-free and it doesn’t scratch, scuff or dent unlike many other popular water bottles.
I took it hiking the other day and decided to put its silicone material to the test. After “dropping” it down a rocky hillside I watched it bounce, roll and blast through shrubs for a few hundred feet. Owning many other plastic and metal insulated water bottles all I could think about was how many dents, scratches and even broken pieces it would have after a drop like this. Yet here the Hydaway is with nothing but a few dirt marks that could be cleaned off in the dishwasher.
I was more than impressed with this collapsible, ultra-stashable, planet-friendly, go-anywhere water bottle within the first day of testing it. It is more user friendly and advantageous to a busy lifestyle than any other water bottle I’ve ever owned. It’s portability makes it easy to throw in the kids lunch box and saves me the embarrassment from clunking around a giant water bottle to and from work. It doesn’t scratch, dent or scuff and it holds up to the harsh environment of anybody’s day to day life. And lastly it’s dishwasher safe meaning so it’s easier to clean and saves me unnecessary time hand washing dishes.
We all know water is a necessity to life, now we have an easy and convenient way to carry that necessity around with us.
Starting at just $25, obtaining a water bottle with the ability to go anywhere we can, fold up to the size of a wallet and adapt to whatever scenario life brings is now just a click away. This is a great gift idea for the fitness minded loved one in your life or for someone who might have an active lifestyle resolution on the horizon.
